Meditation Challenge!

Start your year with two mini guided retreats to inspire and encourage you to start a meditation habit!

Todd will explain and guide some essential meditations from The New Meditation Handbook that are foundational practices on the  spiritual path. They inspire us to engage in spiritual practice and thus find a new depth and meaning to our life.
